Terve! Hello! Maybe you know that I celebrate my 7th birthday today? Mervi insisted on inserting a birthday card in my newsletter so here it is:
I was born on the 25th of November 2016 in Ranua but as you know my home is now in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park.
Oh bear, how time flies!
I have many good memories from Ranua but I love to be here in the Yorkshire Wildlife Park which is said to be one of the best animal parks in the world – if not the best!!
I have many good friends here but because it’s my birthday I want to be the STAR in this newsletter! 🙂
We all have lots of enrichment …
…. so sometimes it’s difficult to choose!
I wonder when there will be polar bear proof toys …. 🙂
What are my birthday wishes? I have food, shelter, toys, friends and loving keeepers (rangers) here so I don’t need anything bearsonally. I wish people would wake up and think about saving our planet and all the living creatures here! Knowing that many polar bears – and other animals – are living under miserable living conditions due to the climate change makes me very sad. My wish to all humas is: WAKE UP!
However, we must try to keep an optimistic mind. Maybe the two legged creatures will finally open their eyes!
Of course, I’m dreaming of snow and ice. Luckily I have photos of the snowy Winters in Ranua so I can watch them when I want to see show. 🙂 Here’s a little selection.
Have I really been so small?
You must admit I was a very cute cubbie!
Little snow on the nose makes everybear look even cuter! 🙂
I wonder if that ice would carry my weight now …
Mervi: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, MY SWEET SISU! I’m sure the readers of this magazine will join me when I’m singing for you – and I’ll try not to sing out of key!!
